    Saimon and Takashi are best friends at school. Takashi always falls in love with girls. Every time he ends up with a broken heart, he comes to Saimon for his advice. One day, Takashi figures out that the person Saimon loves is Takashi himself and gets shocked. [#i_]Saimon & Tada Takashi [_i#]can arouse an interesting dispute in terms of its subject and style, content. It is not because its content and style are preposterous, but because it has unpredictable free-spirit. In the beginning, the film seems to be just typical teen movie about teenagers´ love and friendship. But, at some moment, the audiences can´t anticipate where the film to go and it becomes wrapped in mystery. However, the film goes forward to its own conclusion vitally. It is very noteworthy enough that it gives pleasure breaking the boundary between the narrative and style. [KIM Youngjin]
